Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $300. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Initial intake information: Yellow Male (Mixed) - 90 lbs - Available Now
Jefferson is gentle boy with an amazingly loving personality and generally very mellow nature. He is crate trained, potty trained, and rings ‘the bells’ to let us know when he wants outside.
Jefferson may have sheep or goat guarding instincts in his DNA and needs a leader who is willing and able to establish themselves as a natural authority. He has an experienced foster who can tell you all about his training and needs. Jefferson is looking for someone willing to put the effort into being consistent and firm so that he can relax and enjoy the good life. Jefferson loves other dogs and is very social. He has great manners, is really good on a leash (which is important for a big guy) and is a great walker for an active family. He has good energy and enjoys keeping up with others, but has an off switch and loves to chill as well. Jefferson loves car rides and just being with his people and being the big goofball that he is!

Lee - 5.4 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 70 lbs - Available now
Hi, my name is Lee and the nice people of DFW Lab Rescue brought me in and I am having a great time with my foster mom. I was lost and needed some TLC and am feeling so much better now. I've gained a lot of weight (I’m was 50 lbs. now and still need more to be added). I have a new BFF (my foster mom's cat), and got rid of my skin and ear infections and those silly heart worms without any problems. I'm a very happy guy and never leave my foster mom's side in case she needs a kiss. They tell me I have made great progress since I've been here and all I know is I feel better and love haiving a home!
I'm not a huge fan of my crate but I'm much better with it than I used to be! We only use it when my foster mom goes out to run errands but I’m house trained and I sleep in my bed beside my foster mom all night until my BFF wakes both of us up in the morning. I sit and take treats gently and like it alot when the grandkids visit. My favorite time is when I can snuggle on the couch with my foster mom or just hanging out with the grandkids.
I love walks and meeting the neighborhood dogs and their owners. I'm always up for a car ride and will sit quietly in the back seat with an open window. I would love to meet my forever family since I have so much love to share and so many new things to learn. I'm just a very laid back guy that wants to be with you and be your best friend.

Spanky - 5.3 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male Puppy - Available now.
Stitch - 5.3 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male Puppy - Available now
I am Stitch and I am a super smart bundle of love and cuddles. I am leaning every day from my foster family and the dogs along the way. I love to play and run around with my brother Spanky and anyone else and I am certainly showing everyone how good I am. I am getting so good on potty training and am great with my kennel to relax or sleep most of the night. I am working on great dog things like not jumping and climbing in my enthusiasm but am super curious, so I guess learning some manners & I am learning leash walking is very important. I love walks so much! I am very quick to learn so am going to get all that nailed pretty quick. I am very confident and outgoing and just want to investigate everything but I am also very happy to curl up beside my foster mom and/or brother and snooze.
My new family will need to continue my training so that I will grow up socialized and happy. I like other dogs and people very much! One small thing though -my foster mom does not have a cat so no idea what one of those is yet!

Loves - 2.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 50 lbs - Heartworm positive - Est available Mid-May
Been looking for love in all the wrong places? Ever thought about the advantages of a small lab? I won’t take up most of the bed if allowed. My tail doesn’t knock anything off of the tables. I won’t smother you when laying on your lap. And there are plenty more.
I am crate trained, housetrained and walk good on a leash. I sleep next to foster moms’ bed or in a dog bed at night. I enjoy chewing on Nyla bones and other bones that I am allowed to chew on. I am just learning about toys, so I don’t really have any favorites of them. I also get along with other dogs and seem to pay no attention to the outdoor cats that live here.
If you’re looking for a calm laid back girl, no need to look any further.

Initial intake information: Yellow Female 70 lbs - Heartworm neg - Avail Now
Skywalker Leia - 2.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 89 lbs - Heartworm Neg - Est available date - Mid May
Hi everyone, I'm Skywalker Leia, but you can just call me Leia. I am a sweet, loyal girl with lots of love to give. I am a little shy at first, but once I get to know you and feel safe, I'll be your best friend and will follow you around everywhere! My foster people say I'm polite. I don't chew anything I'm not supposed to, I don't counter surf and I am fully house trained.
I'm looking for a home where I can feel loved and secure. I've been shuffled around lately since my owner moved away so I have some anxiety about being left behind. I will get in my crate when I have to, but it's not my favorite place to be. I would much rather be sleeping on the floor next to your bed. I get along fine with other dogs, but I'd be perfectly happy being the only dog at home as I like the people best anyway. I love toys and enjoy playing fetch. I haven't gotten to walk much lately so I'm a few pounds overweight. Fortunately, I love to walk and am pretty good on a leash so we can work on those last few pounds together.
Kia - 5.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 60 lbs - Heartworm negative - avail now
Mickey - 3.6 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 79 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available date TBD after arrival in foster home
Mickey is a handsome gentle giant and has been nothing but a sweet boy in our house. If you would like a sporty guy, Mickey is the one! Some activities that he loves are chasing the ball and swimming. When playing fetch he will drop the ball at your feet at sit. To cool himself off he likes to jump in the pool real quick. Watch out though when he gets out and shakes!
Mickey has a cat in the house with him. He is curious about the cat but has become comfortable with her as time has passed. Mickey will probably do best as an only dog. He has ignored the neighborhood dog that likes to bark at him but did not enjoy sharing his time with a few dogs at his temp foster. Mick walks nicely on a leash.
Mickey has 3 human brothers under the age of 8 and has been very loving with them. When we all relax at night he will settle down nicely. He compliments our energy very well whether its playing outside or hanging out inside. He will be a great addition to a lucky family.
Baelie - 2.3 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow femlae puppy 8 lbs - Est available date mid May
Lukas - 3.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male - 69 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available date - Late March
Hi, my name is Lukas! I’m an energetic, happy and social yellow lab looking for my furever home. I live with my foster humans and their dog, with whom I love to play chase, tug-a-war, keep away, and fetch. I also love walks, that’s when my foster humans say I prance around. I’m really good on a leash; I don’t pull and I’m very attentive. I so want to make my humans happy. I’m generally confident, curious, friendly and warm. I’m a big guy, but I carry myself well. I love it when my humans pet me and show affection, it makes me feel at home and like I’m part of a family.
I’ve come a long way. There was a time when I was left at a shelter because my original humans didn’t have time for me. I was very scared and even traumatized. So, I had to learn how to trust again. My foster humans say I’m a great dog who deserves a good home. A home filled with love, laughter and humans with pawsitive vibes. Does that sound like you?
Bathsheba - 2.6 Year Old Female
Initial Intake Info: Chocolate - Female - 56 lbs. Est. Available Date TBD after arrival in foster home.
Bathsheba is a beautiful chocolate female. She gets along great with our 3 big dogs, and she likes to play chase and tug-of-war with them. She hasn't shown any interest in chewing anything, and doesn't jump up on people or furniture. She's a velcro dog and just wants to lay down near you while you work or eat. She knows "sit" and has a gentle mouth for taking treats. She's the short and stocky kind of lab. She goes into her crate well, although cries a bit at first. We have seen that behavior decrease, though, with just a few days of our routine. She's a bit of a sloppy drinker! She hasn't met any kids yet, but we will update when that happens.
Meg - 9.8 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate Female - Available now.
Meg is very typical of a lab her age. Unfortunately she has been lacking a consistent home. A home with realistic expectations of puppies. She knows how to sit for her meals and take treats nicely. She goes in her kennel great and walks on a leash well (when not distracted by birds or squirrels). We are learning the meaning of no and off. Meg’s initial response when we arrive home is one of excitement as would be expected. Once she settles down she’s obedient. She has learned to make a game to steal things and run, so she’s learning the new rules to her game and the "release" command is still a bit foreign - but every day we see progress. In her foster home she is only kenneled at night and a couple hours a day. The rest of the time she is following us around the yard, exploring and interacting with the other dogs and living a more structured and young dog appropriate lifestyle. This lifestyle seems to have improved her maturity quickly.
Meg is a fun girl who is a very good girl. She is pretty, petite and has beautiful facial expressions. Let us know if you would like to meet her.
Senor Jake - 2.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 60 lbs - Heartwormnegative - mid may
Baja - 2.1 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Information: Black - Male - 70 lbs. Available now
Here comes a handsome, young big boy full of love, energy and fun! Baja knows sit and down and is very well mannered in the house. He doesn’t beg for food, is not into counter surfing (although no one is immue to temptations) and takes treats very gentle from your hand. He is a dream dog par excellence. Baja loves snuggling, playing with other dogs, fetching balls, splashing in the doggie pool, playing in running sprinklers and most likely swimming too. He is a huge snuggle bug, but not jealous when you pet another pet. He will do great with children, but might accidentally knock smaller ones over, so children over 6 are probably best. Baja loves car rides and will quietly sit or lay down during the ride.
Of course, being a somewhat young dog, he needs lots of love, training and attention in his new best friend(s)/family. Being new to his foster home, he does have a little separation anxiety. He doesn’t like being left alone and will let you know with a whine and high pitched bark, so apartments are probably not best. Someone who is home a lot and/or has another dog would be best as this guy is really very social. He gets very excited and loud when meeting other people and dogs, especially outside and has an impressive, excited bark. But this guy loves people and other dogs and when he calms down is a really sweet boy. Baja is also a very strong boy and therefore, he will need to continue some leash training. Right now he walks his foster mom, and not the other way around.
His behavior towards cats is unknown but we know he is not a fan of kenneling but the good news is, he is trustworthy in the house. Baja sleeps nicely on a dog bed beside your bed and he figured out the sofa is comfy too. So you should have a spot left for him and you will find he will be close on your side no matter what you do! Baja will make someone with lots of time and love a great companion!
Lexie - 1.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female - 75 lbs - Heartworm negative - Avail now
Hello, my name is Lexie and I'm a beautiful yellow/white female lab. How did I get into the foster program? It was not because of me! Long story short, my owners were forced to give me up and I know it made them sad. As for me, I am not the typical girl my age. I have the temperament of a six year old. If I really said how good I am, you would call me a liar and not believe me, but it's true! I am good in the car, good in the house, don’t get on furniture, good on leash, good taking treats, don’t counter surf, love other dogs and like people - especially kids. You want me to go in the crate? Just give the command and I will go running where ever it is. Want me to sleep by your bed? Just ask me and I will not move until you get up. Like I said, this is hard to believe but true.
Now enough about me, I want to know more about you. I prefer a big back yard; pool is optional, no way am I going to get in. What type of bed do you have for me? I prefer at least six inch foam. I like to eat at 7am and 5 pm and I prefer good healthy dog food and not the same old thing every night. I like walks daily - especially when it's cool and not raining. I like to go places with you, so plan on that. Soon, I will be interviewing - so best get prepared! You might want to bring pictures of your house, back yard, my bed, menu and the car I would be riding in. I don’t care if you have a big family or small, other dogs or not because I love them all! See, I am not picky at all, just want some loving.
